It is astonishing to know that the Triber is Renault’s highest-selling car. The exceptional sales of this car have propelled Renault’s total sales to exceed 9 lakh units in India. Renault’s current portfolio includes the Triber, along with other popular models like the Kwid and Kiger, which have also received positive customer response. Renault has been present in the Indian market for 11 years.
